How do you engage the 4x4 on your 2001 ranger super cab is there a sequence?

To properly engage 4 wheel drive on any vehicle you should: 1) put the vehicle in park (automatic) or neutral (manual, - Set parking brake). 2) shift lever to 4 high (man transfer case) or press/turn button/switch to "4 high" when the light blinks on 4 high and stays, shift into reverse. 3)then shift into forward gears. follow same proceedure for manual transfer case, withouth the blinking light..
